We stayed one night at the Hotel Ala prior to our cruise out of Venice. We stayed in a triple on the fourth floor. The room was large and the room had four twin beds that had been pushed together to make two large beds. So the beds were very big and allowed the three of us to get a good nights sleep. All three of us lost our luggage on the flight over and the hotel staff was very helpful in working with the Air France delivery service to coordinate the delivery. Two sets of luggage was delivered to the hotel on the next flight but one set of luggage was lost for 24 hours and the hotel staff coordinated the delivey to the ship pier so that it was there when we boarded the ship. The breakfast the next morning was extensive and located in a very nice area of the hotel. The hotel has free internet in the lobby or you can pay 1 euro and get their password to use the internet in your room. The hotel is located down a short walk way from the Giglio vaparreto stop. The hotel does have an elevator but you need to walk up one flight of stairs to access it. I would not hestitate to stay here again or recommend it to a friend.
